Synopsis: Welcome to The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump. It's a fish out of water story about how God turns 32-year-old Julie's manicured, pedicured, self-absorbed designer life upside down.
Julie, a nominal Christian, heads to New York for a weekend shopping binge. On a deserted train, she sits next to a stranger who turns out to be Jesus. After a wonderful, healing conversation she agrees to His request to, "feed My lambs." When she gets off the train she's in India.
Her charmed life is shattered--she must care for 12 "filthy orphans" living on a dump before she can return to her comfortable life. She lives on the street and overwhelming new challenges arise daily. While squatting in an alley, going to the bathroom, an orphan, named Ravi, steals her designer purse. Unbeknownst to Julie, Ravi, who speaks English, holds the key to her communicating with the other orphans.
Will Julie learn 1) to trust the Lord when nothing is in her control? 2) that she doesn't have to perform to be loved? and 3) that her life is built on a shaky foundation? Can she protect the orphans from a predator who steals and maims children and sends them out to beg? How will God provide food when her wallet is stolen? Can she find safe homes for the children?
The answers to these questions will also be the answers to many of your questions about God, life and yourself. Pick up a copy of The Designer Bag at the Garbage Dump and jump into a great adventure!

Though slow and painful, it is necessary in order to totally live for Him. I have learned through the years that setting our heart to obey Him 98% does not leave us with vibrant spirit. But, giving 100% of ourselves brings 100% of Him. What an
Learn about the struggle for total surrender by watching Julie's life and read the rich rewards that come to her as a result: intimacy with the Lord, a change in perspectives and priorities, a love for people, a healed heart, relational changes, joy and the alleviation of stress and
The second theme of this book is our attitude toward the poor. Reading this book will give an increased inspiration and vision to touch the poor. I challenge you to grapple with the issue of what it looks like to live a simple lifestyle in our western, affluent consumer-oriented culture. Do our checkbooks distinguish us from our unsaved neighbors? Is most of our time consumed by our work in order to pay for more possessions? Beloved, it is best to settle these issues now, not tomorrow or in ten years. Read, learn, be inspired and be change by His abundant grace!
